A smile creeps across the face of Isaac Johnson, owner and manager of Advanced Automotive, as another vehicle exits his shop in top running condition. More than 35 years in the automotive-repair industry has gifted Ike with keen insight into all things automobile, knowledge that he shares with his staff of formally trained, ASE-certified technicians who brandish expertise in everything from tire repair to brake calibration. Thanks to Ike’s son, Matt, who added Pennsylvania safety-and-emissions testing to the shop’s bag of tricks, the staff also makes sure cars comply with state laws as they cruise down highways or screech to a halt in front of jaywalking snowmen.
Eagle Collision's staff consists of ASE-certified technicians who offer a wealth of automotive repair and body work expertise. The shop welcomes all makes and models in for a fix, but they specialize in imports?namely, European and Japanese vehicles that require specialized knowledge and an ability to counteract jet-lag. Eagle's services range from oil changes to large-scale repairs to servicing brakes, tires, transmissions, and engines. In addition to mechanical services, they offer PA state inspections and automotive detailing, the latter a task performed with commitment and attention it takes to restore the car's original luster. Eagle Collision is also a member of the Porsche Club of America, and is a haven of informed technicians for Porsches and other exotic vehicles.
For more than 45 years, Shall-Martin Garage Inc. has been retooling vehicles with an emphasis on honest and transparent customer-employee relationships. Shall-Martin's technicians foster their clients by doting on all kinds of vehicle makes and models with services that include routine inspections, emissions testing, and extensive bodywork, but never pressure drivers into additional work such as converting the trunk into a small public library. A shuttle service and a series of online instructional videos augment the garage’s list of conveniences, as does a complimentary exhaust-flavored lollipop included with each service.

Valvoline extends its care to cars of all makes and models as well as charitable organizations.
